Can't you just see walking down the street Christmas shopping? I don't know where the picture was taken at, but I thought it was beautiful with the snow and decorations.
Snow on the ground and another day of bitter cold weather. It was a good day to stay inside. I have talked to my hubby a couple times today. He told me yesterday that I would be spending the day at home. Other then getting the newspaper, I didn't go outside today. I am suppose to work tomorrow, but it will be wait and see.
I did get out yesterday, but it was only to go to the nursing home. I ended up eating supper with him. He says that he is full without eating all of his supper, which worries me because he hasn't ate that much.According to the news there were quite a few slide off's today. It meant that they weren't driving the way they should for the road condition. My niece was coming down to Christmas shop, but after watching the car lose it in front of them. They went back home.
I thought I would show you some of the tea towels I just finished. They are going to be going to a new home. I am happy the way they turned out. My grandson did the picking colors for me when we were at the craft show.
Yesterday was the rocket race for my youngest grandson cub scout project. He finished second. He would have had first only he didn't get his finger out of the way fast enough after he wound up the rubber band. He got a trophy to add to his shelf.
Next will be the pine wood derby. He is already talking about the car he wants. He is very competitive, wants to win, but doesn't bother him if he doesn't. He just says he needs to try harder.
Christmas will soon be here and I know I probably won't be ready. Christmas makes me remember my dad, who passed away on Christmas Day. When I was in college and went home, I would go to the barn setting on the steps while he milked the cows. I always spent time talking with both of my parents. They were the sounding board. They let us voice our opinion and told us what they thought. Normally we would do what they wanted us to do.
This time of the year brings back the memories of the coasting parties, hot chocolate, cookies that was always ready when we came in while growing up not far from town. Our house was full of friends.
We would all go home for Christmas and there was always something under the tree for all. One year it was covered sponge balls. Needless to say they were flying through the air. Walking on top of snow drifts to get home, did that one year too.
Wherever you are at and whatever weather you have, please be safe and warm. Take care.
